Overtime begins for Retegui and Malinovskyi: there’s a bit of Genoa at Euro2024

Off we go. The Coverciano meeting of the Italian national team begins. The 2024 European Championship is on the horizon and there is also a bit of Genoa among those called up. Mateo Retegui in fact, he will be part of the 29 pre-summoned Italian players who will prepare for the friendly match against Turkey next Tuesday, after which on Thursday the 6th there will be the final list of the 26 who will leave for Germany. Hope could be concrete for Grifone’s number 19 given that there are only two first strikers in the list, him and Scamacca, and in all likelihood the coach will want to have them available. A week to give everything and be at your best to start an adventure in blue, with a pinch of red and blue.

Malinovskyi leaves for Euro2024
Who will be certain to participate in the competition is instead Ruslan Malinovskyi. The Ukrainian midfielder was called up by the technical commissioner Sergiy Rebrov for the tournament which will start on June 14th with the opening match while on June 17th it will be the turn of Grifone’s number 17 to take the field against his former teammate Radu Dragusin, now to Tottenham, and to another player owned by Genoa such as George Puscas, on loan in the second part of last season to Bari.

Nothing to do for Frendrup and De Winter
Morten Frendrup and Koni De Winter will have to watch the European Championship from the sofa instead. The Danish midfielder, despite his excellent championship, was not called up by his national team as was the Belgian centre-back. There will certainly be opportunities to make up for it given the young age of both and the prospects they have in front of them. They will have a month to recharge their batteries and show up at the Pegli meeting, probably at the beginning of the second week of July, before leaving for the Moena training camp to prepare for a new season.
